Boston College at Rutgers

Andrew Elderbaum

Rutgers has lost six of their last seven home games, and the streak looks to continue. QB Mcclane Carter has an INT to TD ratio of 2 to 1, and things don’t look to be getting much better. BC is averaging close to 250 yards on the ground per game and will most likely continue to control the ball in this game. The team’s styles of play will probably prevent a blowout but Boston College will win. BC 23 Rutgers 10.

The underdog Rutgers Scarlet Knights will play valiantly as always against Boston College. In a close back and forth game Rutgers will get great play from their duo of running backs Raheem Blackshear and Isaih Pacheco to lead the team to an upset victory. Rutgers wins.

Jason Reed

This is one of those college football games that really can go either way, which is refreshing with all of the 30-point spread lines that we see in the NCAA. Heck, ESPN’s matchup predictor has this game so narrowly close that Boston College has a 50.3 percent chance of winning, Rutgers 49.7.

The telling sign to go off of here is the point totals. Boston College averages 34.7 per game while allowing 29.7. Rutgers averages 24 while letting up 25.5. Boston College is going to meet right at the middle of those two numbers with 30 to defeat Rutgers, who will score their average, by six. BC 30, Rutgers 24.

I liked Rutgers in this game before the season started. Even after their poor showing at Iowa two weeks ago, I still think they win this game. The Scarlet Knights potent running attack will allow them to control the clock, limiting B.C.’s possessions. Conversely, Rutgers defense will flex a little more muscle than they did in Iowa City. They won’t be on the field as long, so the unit won’t be gassed by halftime. Rutgers wins by four, 21-17.
